Nodlandsvatnet is a lake in the municipality of Eigersund in Rogaland county, Norway. The lake is a major reservoir for the local energy company Dalane Energi, and has a capacity of 20 million cubic metres, the second largest in the area after Spjodevatnet with 24 million cubic metres.[1]

The lake also serves a recreational function. The Opplev Dalane (explore Dalane) hiking path runs past the lake, and an open hut for hikers is expected to open in December 2007 at Imeseid. The lake also has a sandy beach.[2][3]
